I opened my eyes to see my seven-year-old boy standing next to the bed, smiling sweetly. "Happy Birthday, Mom!" he said.

What a nice way to wake up. He then asked where Dad was and was quite disappointed to hear that Dad had to work on Mom's birthday. Ah, life just isn't fair, huh?

Yesterday one of my coworkers brought in the world's best brownies to help me celebrate. Cookie on the bottom and fudge frosting on the top! I also received a big pack of dark chocolate m&m's and some spray and lotion from Bath and Body Works. It was a nice surprise.

We went shopping last night so hubby could get me a birthday gift. I got two new pairs of shoes (gotta love BOGO) and, of course, The Diamond of Darkhold. I can hardly wait to read it!

Today my girls are going to make me a German Chocolate Cake. Yum! And later we're having some neighbors over for a cookout. Not a bad way to spend a birthday.


  1. Sounds wonderful. :-) I am glad you have people around you to appreciate and love you.

    Happy Birthday!

  2. Sounds like a perfect birthday, even with the work!
    33 is a great age! I just hit 38 in April, and oddly enough I'm loving it.
    Mmmm...fudge frosting.

  3. Mmmmm lots of chocolate. Happy birthday Becky. :)

    Happy belated birthday. How's that novel in verse coming along?


I would love to hear from you!
